Breaking News

Ute-gate. Why are the media so obsessed with this nothing story? It's clearly not of any interest to anyone, not even the most bored of poll watchers could be remotely excited by this. It's like being at a party where you don't know anyone and the only one who will talk to you can only speak Albanian. Are the viewing audience no longer regarded? Perhaps we should just leave the party, turn off the television and get on with the important stuff that we do everyday that the media and politicians seems to be completely unconcerned with. If we are going to get to the point where trivial muckraking like this becomes substituted for nightly news can I suggest a few more gates to add to the list:

  • Admitted to not really liking Susan Boyle-gate
  • Can't work out why Matt Preston has Marie Osmond's hairstyle-gate
  • Think Gordon Ramsay could be sexy if you cut his head off-gate

And to think all you need to do is send an email. God help us when they discover texting!

  1. Yes I think you could say that pollies and journos have truly gone into a lather about this, while a tired and bemused public reluctantly looks on... again.

    I might flick over and see what's happening in the latest Paris Hiltongate? Spoilt for choice we are.
